Summary of IGF2

IGF2 (insulin like growth factor 2) encodes a protein that is involved in controlling growth and development in an organism (R). 

The Function of IGF2

Preptin undergoes glucose-mediated co-secretion with insulin, and acts as physiological amplifier of glucose-mediated insulin secretion. Exhibits osteogenic properties by increasing osteoblast mitogenic activity through phosphoactivation of MAPK1 and MAPK3.
